    Unanswered: Mouse Scroll Wheel problems in VBA IDE

    I am running Office 2003, with VBA 6.5. I also have a Logitech mouse with a scroll wheel.

    Whenever I am in the VBA IDE, using the mouse scroll wheel causes weird stuff to happen. After just a few "clicks" of the scroll wheel, I usually see my code screen rapidly page up/down until it maxes out at the beginning/end of the module. Then, it will sit there for a minute or two before the cursor is released to allow me to do anything else in the code window.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks ...

    I also have a logitech mouse (ps/2) and access 2003. I am using Win XP SP2. This hasn't happened to me. The only suggestion I can think of is to either update your driver or download a new one entirely.

    If you have a second mouse, try it first before changing the driver. It's also possible that your mouse itself may be broken (though unlikely if the problem is only happening in access).

    Sounds like a hardware or driver problem to me.

    Try turning off your mouse driver and see what happens.

    I've had all kinds of weird stuff happen in regard to scrolling in VBA code windows ... different weirdness for different mice. Each could be corrected by disabling the special mouse driver functionality.

    BTW, what is IDE in this context?

    I dunno. For a while I just assumed it was some other term for GUI.

    A4 Tech mousewheel is not recognized at all in the vba window. It works in all other windows apps though.

    Just to keep things more amusing, sometimes it works just fine. Other times, it exhibits the "massive amounts 'o scrolling" problem for just a few wheel clicks.

    I haven't been able to spot a pattern yet for "when it is bad" vs. "when it is good."

    I have uninstalled / reinstalled the Logitech drivers, AND ... no luck.

    I think I have a fix for the VB IDE 6.5 Wheel Issue

    I have Windows 7 with Microsoft Mouse 5000
    IntelliPoint 8.2 software is installed.
    When I tried to scroll within the VB IDE 6.5 my display driver would crash momentarily and then recover.

    The fix was to disable the Mouse Wheel Acceleration Feature.
    Control Panel / Mouse Properties / Wheel / Advanced / Uncheck / Ok / Ok

    No Reboot Required.
